Breast cancer

Description

Chairs: T. Cufer, SI - A. Eniu, RO


The Refresher Course on Breast Cancer has been designed for medical and clinical oncologists who have attended a previous edition of the Eastern Europe and Balkan Region Masterclass in Medical/Clinical Oncology with the aim to provide an update on the state-of-the-art therapeutic options as well as an overview of the latest advances in the field of breast cancer.
The programme will offer educational lectures covering updates on the diagnosis and treatment of both early and advanced breast cancer, emphasizing the multidisciplinary dimension of managing breast cancer. Moreover, spotlight lectures will discuss specific issues related to particular situations such as breast cancer in young women or survivorship issues.

Practical training will be offered in the frame of clinical cases presentations, prepared and presented by participants and discussed with the faculty with interactive voting from the participants.

We cordially encourage all past participants, their invited colleagues and further participants to the Course and look forward to welcome them in Cluj-Napoca.
